I arrived late in the afternoon. The museum was closed because of the current situation but I enjoyed a wonderful hour at the exhibition in the Orangarie with good information in both Swedish and English and a walk in the gardens.

The house we visited was a painter's house, not only him but his wife as well. The steps are a little awkward going up and down. The upstairs is not even, so watch your step, other than that it was a amazing house. My Uncle who lives there told us about the famous painter of Sweden. The wedding of my cousin was the biggest surprise that got me over there, this was a close second.

The Linnaeus Garden was the first botanical garden in Sweden founded in 1655 by Olof Rudbeck the elder. It is laid out in the French Style and restored following Linnaeus' and Carl Hårleman's design from 1745. Today approximately 1300 species are grown here. All known to have been cultivated by Linnaeus and arranged according to his own system. A free guided tour in English possible. Entrance ticket is valid for the garden, museum and Linnaeus Hammarsby located outside Uppsala. The botanic garden, with Carl Linnaeus’ professorial residence, exhibitions, café and shop are open from the beginning of May to the end of September. In the former home of Carl Linnaeus is the Linnaeus Museum, run by the Swedish Linnaeus Society.

Small but beautiful and extremely rich for its size. You are supposed to pay a fee, but they keep the gates open after the office closes so you can visit for free after 5 PM.

A fascinating garden: clear information in English, quiet and uncrowdedy, good shop with friendly staff. Linnæus’s house (included in the entry price) is very interesting and the audio guide is excellent. No cafe but lots nearby - highly recommend those on the riverbank.
